Hey all you folks listening on the web, from far a field. Throw WFMU a bone. You almost certainly have not discovered ALL that WFMU has to offer. Michael Shelley is the best there is, but there are many many fantastic shows to discover. If you listen, please help. Now.

Up until a couple of years ago, the station had income by renting out the first floor to various businesses. Now that Monty Hall occupies the space, that is some lost income that needs to be made up from marathon donations.

I'd like to point out that the prevoius James Hunter LP is every bit as good! Everyone should find a copy.
  Sat. 3/19/16 12:57pm Joe R.:

Maybe it's just me but I'd swear that intro to "Games People Play" sounds likes "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" - can't wait for my copy just the same!

i feel like i've heard a lot about the bird, and yet i sill don't *know* much about it, except that the bird is widely known, it is "the word", and it enjoys surfin', which, to be fair, is quite an unusual hobby for a bird
